Spectacular building constructed using 33,000 beer crates

The Belgians love their beer, so it seems pretty natural for them to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Brussels World's Fair by building this incredible pavilion using recycled orange plastic beer crates.

Built in the shadow of The Atomium, the central symbol of the original event, the pavilion was designed by architects Shin Bogdan Hagiwara, Thierry Decuypere, and Jorn Aram Bihain to be a temporary structure, and after disassembly the crates will return to carting around bottles of Stella Artois. The pavilion houses exhibits about The Atomium and World's Fair, but I think the beer crate pavilion is a pretty cool attraction all by itself.

I just wonder who drank 33,000 cases of beer?
